Low-rise pants are a Y2K fashion trend that’s making a comeback.
While jeans are the most popular type, it’s common to see people wearing regular mid-rise pants low on their waist to make them look like they’re low-rise.
Some people search for low-rise jeans in thrift stores, but the ones from back then were more slim fitting, so it’s quite a leap for people used to the baggy silhouette of cargo pants and the like to wear them.
Ripped denim (with holes, etc.), which was popular around the same time as low-rise jeans, has also gained popularity since Margiela's cutout jeans became a big hit.
So this time, we looked for people on the street wearing denim pants in an original, stylish way.
